116th CONGRESS

2d Session

S. 2472

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

AN ACT

To redesignate the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Plum Brook Station, Ohio, as the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at the Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility.

1.

Short title

This Act may be cited as the Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility Act.

2.

Findings

Congress finds as follows:

(1)

Neil A. Armstrong, through his own definition, was first and foremost as a test pilot.

(2)

A native of Wapakoneta, Ohio, Armstrong began his inspiring career in space exploration in Cleveland, Ohio, at what is now the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center.

(3)

Becoming the first human to land a spacecraft, and then set foot upon, the moon, represents the greatest dream of any test pilot.

(4)

Therefore, it is fitting that the premier aeronautics and space test station in Ohio should be renamed in his honor.

3.

Redesignation of NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Plum Brook Station, Ohio, as NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at the Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility
